KPMG launches global centre of excellence for family business.
KPMG has launched a global centre of excellence dedicated to family
business. This initiative offers greater access to knowledge and
expertise available across the global network of family-owned companies.
KPMG launched the initiative in collaboration with Young
Presidents' Organisation (YPO) that provides all members of
YPO's Global Family Business Network (GFBN) with exclusive access
to knowledge on family businesses. "Family businesses are a pillar
of economic growth in Qatar," said Yacoub Hobeika, partner (audit
and advisory) KPMG in Qatar. "KPMG recognises the importance of
family business and the launch of dedicated centre of excellence for
family businesses would ensure the valuable business insights and the
knowledge of external experts is shared with family businesses in
Qatar." "Our collaboration with KPMG helps us further our
mission of strengthening families, businesses and legacies by connecting
members to one another and to the best resources in the world,"
said GFBN director Vicki Novikoff Barnhart. KPMG's Centre of
Excellence for Family Business takes the form of a dedicated team based
in Paris and a combination of practitioners from KPMG member firms and
independent experts such as Christine Blondel (senior advisor to KPMG on
family business intelligence), an adjunct professor of Entrepreneurship
and Family Enterprise at the Wendel International Centre for Family
Enterprise at INSEAD. KPMG's Centre of Excellence provides insights
on seven key issues of family business such as growth, governance,
assurance, exit strategies, wealth preservation, philanthropy and
succession and next generation. KPMG said its family business approach
utilises the "best combination" of these seven needs. By
sharing family business best practices and know-how, KPMG professionals
will contribute to and increase knowledge of family businesses.
